Helping a innocent man
David is one of the best lawyers I could ever have. He is someone you can trust, and will always do his best to help you. He believed me in what really happened in my case, it was a felony sex offense that got dismissed.

Recommend a call to David (3 charges incl. felony)
David Smith is a great attorney. I recommend that you strongly consider his criminal representation. My experience in working with him is that he is highly responsive and knows how to effectively work with people and the legal system. He helped me turn a bad situation into a great outcome. I was not local to the area where my charges originated & were pending, and I never felt like I was too far removed from the situation because David's communication and actions of accountability were reassuring. I am thankful in my decision to retain David (for a very reasonable rate in my opinion) and am happy to endorse him.

Truly recommend!!
David is a great, professional lawyer. He was always on top of things and always keeping you up to date on everything. He explains every step to you and makes sure you completely understand everything. My husband and I are truly grateful to have met David, he solved our legal problem and it’s such a relief.

Couldn't ask for better representation!!!
David Smith was the best attorney I can ever ask for. He knows exactly what to do, and how to do it in order to get you the best result possible. He's ontop of things and gets back to you as soon as he possibly can. He really puts his clients before anything and is very respectful. There was absolutely no flaws at all and is highly experienced. I'm a student in college that pulled a ridiculous stunt that could have ended my goals and possibly my career, but David told me he was going to do everything in his power to make sure that wouldn't happen. David definitely delivered and I'm so grateful to have had him by my side representing me. He is amazing at what he does and anybody would be grateful to have him represent them because he is that good. So thank you again David for giving me my life back. He deserves more than 5 stars.

Top tier lawyer
David represented me in two related business litigation cases and negotiated on my behalf in a separate employer/employee dispute. In all his representations David combined his brilliant legal mind and steely resolve to present forceful polished oral and written arguments that carried the day at every step of the legal process. His excellent representation and tireless work on my behalf resulted in my winning all three cases. If you want top tier representation and you want to win David is your man!

Highly Recommended.
Look no further!! If David is on your team you are a winner. David was extremely dedicated and devoted to our case, guiding and coaching on very step. With his deep intellect and knowledge he amazed us beyond expectation. His strategic tactics and calculated path took us the position we wanted to, in no time. We don't wish anybody to go thru the legal system, but when life makes it necessary you can rely on David.

Bottom line - he wins
My colleagues and I worked with several attorneys before finding David Smith. We were frustrated and very concerned about the monetary ramifications of dealing with a plaintiff with a massive ego and grudge that had far greater resources than we had. David's expertise saved us. I cannot imagine what my life would look like now without his help. I would be happy to recommend David.

Excellent attorney!
We first met David when he represented an adversary - and we engaged him at the next opportunity. David has handled a number of litigations and arbitrations for us, with excellent results. David works hard to understand the issues in a case, help evaluate the various possible approaches, explain the risks, manage the litigation, and get to a cost-effective resolution.

David Smith
David Smith is intelligent, dedicated and caring. He made sure that I was prepared and was by my side every step of the way. I have been lucky enough to have him represent me a number of times with matters pertaining to the Securities industry. Any person in need of legal representation in the Securities industry/ Financial markets should not hesitate in hiring Mr. Smith for any of their needs.

David Smith compares to most lawyers (that I have hired through my business career), like a Navy Seal compares to a foot soldier. Both are in the same field, but David is many cuts above the crop in his profession. David Smith invested his brilliant and tenacious mental faculties and acclimated the history and facts of my circumstances, essentially owning and living my entire case every step of the way, dedicating himself to it like a sacred mission. David Smith can be trusted to sow and reap the best results possible if he decides to take on your case. David Smith’s mission to win is paramount. He strategized every step of my case far in advance, and re-strategized again and again as the case evolved. No part of my case was handled at the last minute. David handled my case like a Navy Seal operation, where an entire replica of the site may be built much in advance of the actual mission as a tool to practice and contemplate the variables that follow during the actual mission or parts thereof. David Smith is a consummate professional and deserves the accolade of being considered a lawyer’s lawyer. He brought me great results and I am thankful for his representation.

Excellent Counsel
It is my pleasure to unreservedly recommend Mr. Smith to anyone who requires top drawer representation. I have had the good fortune to retain Mr. Smith on a number of occasions. Not only has he performed in an exemplary fashion, he has prevailed in several matters where I didn’t think anyone could. His work always demonstrates his mastery of the law and the case-specific material. He is also personable and puts even the most volatile clients at ease. If you are facing a difficult situation or you merely want the comfort of being represented by the best, Mr. Smith is your man.
